That looks lovely Dennis!
I have the kit in my stash and its high on the build list.
A question about the rigging? Did you follow the elaborate diagrams in the instruction leaflet or do it yourself in your own way?

Hi again Dennis.
Im away from home at the moment but if memory serves me correctly the holes for the rigging wires are "pre drilled" in the Revell boxing at least, is that the case, and if so did you fill them?
Looking forward to seeing this in the "plastic". After seeing one built up at Telford 2006 I couldnt wait for it to be released.

Hi Nige

The holes are there, what I did was to make some rings from fine copper wire wrapped round a 1mm drill then twisted the ends.Then I cut the twisted end about 3mm along and inserted them into the holes fixing with super glue.
